Slanted Vs and Ridges Scarf, pattern designed by Sandi Marshall

This scarf is worked in long rows. In this design, I made the v-stitches pull into a slanted direction by skipping 3 stitches after the v-stitch and then doing a shorter stitch (a single crochet). The pattern repeat is 4 stitches wide so you can add or subtract from the starting chain in any multiple of 4, if you want a shorter or a longer scarf.

Abbreviations: ch = chain, dc = double crochet, ea = each, sc = single crochet, sl st = slip stitch, sp = space, st = stitch

v-stitch = dc, ch 1, dc

How To Crochet in Back Loop Only

Materials: about 4 1/2 (5 1/2, 6 1/2) oz. worsted weight yarn, US size H hook. I used Caron Simply Soft in color Denim Heather for the example.

Finished Size: about 3 3/4 inches wide and 60 (73, 86) inches long (these lengths are for the 3 starting chain choices given). Photo shows the 246 starting chain length.
Gauge is not important for this pattern. Length and width can vary, with no problem.

Pattern Note: You will turn at the end of each row.
Starting Chain: ch 210 (246, 282).
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook, sc in ea ch across. (209, 245 or 281 sc)
Rows 2 and 3: ch 1 to turn, sc in back loop only of ea sc across.
Row 4: This row is worked in both loops of the stitches. ch 1 to turn, (sc, dc, ch 1, dc) all in first sc, * skip 3 sc, (sc, dc, ch 1, dc) all in next sc, **, repeat the directions between * and ** as many times as needed to go across the row, until 4 sc remain, then skip 3 sc, sc in last sc.
Row 5: ch 1 to turn, sc in first sc, * sc in next dc, sc in next ch-1 sp, sc in next dc, sc in next sc **, repeat the directions between * and ** as many times as needed to go across the row.
Rows 6 and 7: ch 1 to turn, sc in back loop only of ea sc across. Note: Crocheting these rows in the back loops only creates the ridges for this design.
Rows 8 - 11: Repeat Rows 4 - 7.
Rows 12 - 15: Repeat Rows 4 - 7.
End off, leaving a strand for weaving in. Weave in the ends, to secure.
